Java validating a certificate

In order to enhance security, the certificate revocation checking feature has been enabled by default starting in Java 7 Update 25.

After you install the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) or the Java Development Kit (JDK), you will find the “keystore” in the directory of your JRE.

Just to clarify the question: are you talking about X.509 certificates, possibly outside the scope of SSL/TLS (e.g. I'm not sure whether the RFID application you're talking about would use TLS.

Without certificate revocation, your only way of validating a certificate would be to make sure the dates are good and that the CA that signed it is trusted.

Bing Maps APIs support both HTTP and HTTPS requests that use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocols.

The SSL and TLS endpoints are secured by certificates.

For example, when you query a data source directly from your browser by using the Bing Spatial Data Services (SDS), as in the following example, you can view the certificate chain by clicking the “lock” icon.
